    A majority of the 49 economists polled said they were dissatisfied with the administration's economic policies, according to the paper, a stark contrast to Obama's popularity ratings with the general public.
    On average, the economists gave the president a grade of 59 out of 100, and although there was a broad range of marks, 42 percent of respondents rated Obama below 60, the paper said.

    Still rather early to call this one. As for economists, I like Krugman and Freidman, most of the rest don't seem to realize the average citizen is not fluent in the technical language of economics. Then, again, like Truman said, "Lay all the economist in the world end to end, and they would form a circle".
